Snow Dump For Queenstown Ski Areas (17-Aug-08)

New Zealand Ski, August 17. 2008 - Snow fall to lake level yesterday has brought smiles

Snow fall to lake level yesterday has brought smiles to the faces of skiers and snowboarders in Queenstown, many of whom are enjoying a fantastic, blue ski powder day at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables today.

Both premier ski areas benefited with Coronet Peak receiving 15 centimetres on top of a metre base and The Remarkables 10 centimetres to add to its base of 1 metre 20.

Coronet Peak ski area manager Hamish McCrostie says there’s fantastic skiing and riding across the entire mountain.

“It’s vintage Coronet Peak, it doesn’t get much better this.  Today there’s an awesome powder day atmosphere – everyone’s carving it up and having a ball.”

Over at The Remarkables, manager Ross Lawrence is seeing the same kind of grins.

“It’s such a buzz to look around and see The Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Queenstown and the entire Wakatipu Basin just blanketed in snow.

“The conditions are superb with great snow everywhere at the Remarks.”
